I made this tonight to go alongside shrimp scampi over angel hair pasta. My daughter and I loved it. I didn't have grated cojack cheese so I substituted what I did have - sharp cheddar, a little bit of Gouda and some mozzarella. Next time I think I will try pressing out the bread dough to fill out an entire 10"x15" rimmed baking pan, because I like my focaccia on the thinner side. This is, however, a great, versatile recipe.

We made this for Sunday football appetizers and dipped it in marinara sauce! I made it as-is and everyone enjoyed it.

WOW!!! This was amazing!! If you like olives, you'll love this! Simply thaw the bread - there's no need to let it rise. The only change I made was to use sharp cheddar cause that's what I had on hand. I will be making this often! Thanks so much!!
